Objectives of the Corella Management Grants Program

The Victorian Government is funding these grants to address agricultural, infrastructural, environmental, and social impacts of corella on community and to achieve the following specific outcomes:

  • Aid mitigation in managing corella impacts on community.
  • Evaluate effectiveness of management options, with a focus on utilising non-lethal control techniques and trialling or researching new methods.
  • Better evaluation of the financial impacts of corella damage and associated management costs.
  • Review of the social, economic and environmental implications of management practices.

The Corella Management Grants Program guidelines align with the Victorian Corella Strategy 2022-2032.

The strategy promotes a living with wildlife approach to encourage positive attitudes to corellas, as part of a broader strategy for management of human/wildlife conflict in Victoria.

It aims to achieve long-term outcomes for wildlife and for the community through:

  • Protection of animal welfare
  • Healthy and sustainable wildlife populations and habitat
  • Reduced impact of wildlife on environmental, social, cultural and economic assets and values
  • Community valuing wildlife and contributing to wildlife management.
